DESCRIPTIONntpstat will report the synchronisation state of the NTP daemon running on the local machine. If the local system is found to be synchronised to a reference time source, ntpstat will report the approximate time accuracy.
RETURNSntpstat returns 0 if clock is synchronised. ntpstat returns 1 if clock is not synchronised. ntpstat returns 2 if clock state is indeterminant, for example if ntpd is not contactable.
